Arctic Oscillation Market Collapse

Unless there/s been a big mistake in reporting the data...the AO took a steep...67% nose-dive today...as the index fell 1.456 points.

Yesterday/s AO index value had soared to 2.187.... creeping toward outlier territory.

Today...there must have been a strong 'sell' signal in the global teleconnection markets...b/c the index lost 2/3 of its value as it crashed-landed @ 0.730!

Positive AO values trend to keep Arctic air bottled up at hi-latitudes. When the AO lurks below zero...the cold air often escapes into the Lower 48.

By the looks of it...AO is heading downtown for an extended stay.
